Smith Clean is here to offer you reliable and cheap rug cleaning in Melbourne.
On Site vs Factory Cleaning
There are different types of rugs and not every rug is made the same, so why should they be cleaned the same way? To avoid damage and preserve the look of your rugs, Smith Clean provides two options: On-Site and Factory cleaning.
On-Site or Home Cleaning

The Smith Clean Rug Cleaning Solutions
Step One: Pick Up & Inspect
For factory cleaning, we go the extra mile and remove any dirt stains left by your rug on your property. This also applies if you opt for a rug steam cleaning in Melbourne. Before processing, our team will inspect your rug to identify its composition.
Each type of rug has its own cleaning characteristics. Synthetic wool can’t be processed the same way as natural wool. At this stage, we also survey any damages, stains, and odours to determine any extra steps in the cleaning process.
Step Two: Dusting and Dirt Removal
Rugs are usually placed in high foot traffic areas of the home. This makes it vulnerable to absorbing dust mites and dirt in between its fibres. You may not notice it but over time, this changes the colour of your rug – from vibrant to dusty.
After manual dusting, our team then feeds your rug into a duster machine. This machine is designed to remove deep-seated dirt trapped in between your rug fibres.
Step Three: Colour-Checking and Spot Treatments
Rugs are coloured with different types of dyes. Depending on the type of rug and dye, there’s a possibility that colour could bleed and cause irreparable damage. To avoid this, our team tests your rug’s fibres to decide the right cleaning process.
At this stage, spot treatments are also applied to remove invisible stains like those cause by animal urine and food spillage.
Step Four: Pre-Spray
Much like heat-protectant sprays used on your hair, we also pre-spray your rugs for an even and safe application of our biodegradable products. This ensures that the fibres and dye in your rug are delicately handled during the cleaning process.
This step is especially important for woven rugs and silk rugs to keep their soft and smooth texture.
Step Five: Rotary Shampooing
Our expert rug cleaners then use a rotary brush machine to apply shampooing solution to your rug. The shampoo is created through the rotating brushes of the machine. This then crystallises over 16 hours and lifts any remaining dirt and soil, making it easy to rinse and vacuum.
Step Six: RinsingThorough rinsing is needed after shampooing. That’s why Smith Clean uses a rinsing machine with state of the art technology. With cold water, it gently rinses the shampoo and dirt from your rug before ringing it out to prepare for drying.
Step Seven: Drying
Rugs tend to be thick and even if they don’t look like it, thousands of packed fibres take a long time to dry. By keeping them in a temperature-controlled room, our team strictly supervises the drying process and checks for any missed stains.
After a few days, your rug will be available for pick up or drop off looking good as new.
